I saw a documentary on BBC2 today that covered US entry into world war one and part of the story was that the German government funded terrorists to blow up arms and munitions factories supplying the Allies before the US declared war.

Just wondering why this isnt more widespread knowledge.

- Maybe because when it comes down to it people are relutant to get into this whole 'terrorism' arena.

To get into the facts and actual history of it is kind of to dilute and complicate things and blur the 'on - message' message.

Maybe that is because the whole business of modern terrorism is originally one where several Govs invented and used it - using proxies and plausibly deniable 'arms length' irregulars - in the first place.

Maybe because the only important terrorist attack was 9/11, right sminkey? Just kidding.


There's alot of knowledge that isn't as widespread as it should be, for instance when everybody is slamming the U.S. for using atomic weapons on Japan, which was horrible, they never seem to place equal scrutiny on Japan's use of a huge array of biological and chemical weapons on China and the Phillipines in that same war, which killed far more people than the atomic bombs did. Not saying either was justified, only that there's rarely fair and balanced discussion on war or terrorism because almost everybody takes a side.

Maybe because it happened a long time ago. Not much different to the Americans launching cruise missiles at that 'chemical' plant in Sudan because it was supposed to be supporting terrorism or something, not to mention invading Afghanistan and Iraq because they harboured terrorists. I mean if your at war your enemies supplies are a legitimate target and any country that supporting your enemy is your enemy and a legitimate target. Probably not the smartest move on the Germans to give themselves yet another enemy in a large power like the US, but hey they went back and did it again just to show how clever they were.

Don't forget the French Resistance Terrorists, oh wait they were on 'our' side so that makes it ok, oh and didn't the US support OBL & his Jihad friends in Afghanistan against the Soviets, were they terrorists back then?
So as you can see a terrorist is whomever it is politically convenient to be.
